Induction cooktops

Yes, they're dangerous IFF:

        1) Your leads are unipolar (not likely anymore)

        2) You lay down on the cooktop (well, you decide)

        3) There is an off-center pot on the cooktop (Ok, could happen)

        4) You are pacemaker dependent (are you?)

The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
